More About Pine Cone Seeds

After some research, I wrote about pine cone seeds a few posts back, but now that we were surrounded by pine cones, I wanted to have a closer look for myself.

Here is the pine cone I started with.

I pulled away some of the scales at the bottom.  You can see how the seeds sit between the scales.

They sit neatly between the rows.

The seeds were about an inch long and 1/4 inch wide.

I didn't see a nut looking thing on the end, but perhaps these seeds were immature.  If I ever find a mature seed, I'll post again and let you know how it tastes.
